A nice deep Walnut bowl, finished with Howard's Butcher Block Conditioner.
This bowl was turned from a piece of wood from the outside edge of a log, with a nice transition from the dark Walnut color at the base in to the lighter sap wood. The natural edge is a result of the shape of the outside of the log it was made from. The natural edge lends to an organic natural look flowing with the grain lines, and varying height around the bowl.
This bowl was finish turned when the wood was still somewhat wet. This results in the wood naturally moving a little as it dries out. As a result, bowls turned this way may not sit completely flat on a hard surface, as the wood warps when it dries out.
It is about 8” overall diameter, and 2” overall height. The bowl portion is 6” diameter, and 1.5” deep on the taller ends.
